Than Htwe, 58, underwent surgery for a severe head injury following Saturday’s incident and remains in critical condition, the New York Daily News reported. Her 22-year-old son also suffered minor injuries, the Daily News reported.
The NYPD released a video Sunday of the suspect. He was seen in the video exiting the turnstile at the station wearing a gray T-shirt, black pants, and a white bandana.
The incident occurred as the mom and son were walking up the staircase of the Canal Street Q train station around 10:45 a.m. Saturday, authorities said. The alleged thief attempted to grab the son’s backpack, which sent the pair tumbling backward.
One witness told the New York Post that the son was “screaming for help” and the mother’s head was bleeding profusely.
Htwe moved to New York from Burma in 2018 for her son’s education, the paper reported.
